Today in the News Media

Today in the News Media is a synopsis of some of the most prominent coverage of OSU people and programs. Inclusion of any item constitutes neither an endorsement nor a critique, but rather is intended only to make the OSU community aware of significant items in the media.

Sea star wasting on the Pacific Coast linked to virus, scientists say (Oregonian)

Chris Suttle, a marine virus expert at the University of British Columbia, and Bruce Menge, professor of interactive biology at Oregon State University, were not part of the study. Both said the study, though it did not definitively identify a virus as the cause of the disease, was very persuasive. (see also Huffington Post)

School apologizes to rape victim (ESPN)

The president of Oregon State University has apologized to a woman who alleged in 1998 that she was raped at a party by four men, including two university football players. (see also Chronicle of Higher Education)

OSU engineers identify method of preparing frozen red blood cells for transfusions (News-Medical)

Engineers at Oregon State University have identified a method to rapidly prepare frozen red blood cells for transfusions, which may offer an important new way to manage the world’s blood supply. (see also Medical Xpress)

Oregon doing well in limiting unneeded antibiotics (KTVZ)

AWARE is partnering with the Oregon State University College of Pharmacy to offer educational information and activities promoting appropriate antibiotic use and hand hygiene during a free public event called “AWARE on the Square,” set for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, November 21, at Pioneer Courthouse Square, 701 SW 6th Avenue in downtown Portland. They also are providing free flu vaccinations for uninsured adults from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Researchers identify “Goldilocks Effect’ of reclassification on high school ELLs (ED Week)

High school students may sink rather than swim if it is too easy to exit English-learner status. By contrast, when exit standards make like Goldilocks and increase to a level of difficulty that is just about right, the transition from English-learner to “fluent English proficient” status has little impact on subsequent achievement levels or graduation rates. So suggest the results of a new study by Joseph P. Robinson-Cimpian, an assistant professor of quantitative and evaluative research methodologies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Karen D. Thompson, an assistant professor of education at Oregon State University.

OSU students upgrade cars for use by kids with limited mobility (Gazette-Times)

The new car was built by faculty, staff and students from Oregon State University. They teamed up last Tuesday night to convert seven toy cars for use by children who have limited mobility. Now, they have a way to move around independently that also is fun. Perhaps just as important, it’s a way they can play with other kids.

Strategies to reduce the use of antibiotics in animals (Pharmaceutical Journal)

The bacteriophage enzymes have two big advantages over conventional antibiotics, says Bruce Seal, a former USDA microbiologist, now at Oregon State University, who led the work. One is that they are highly species-specific — they will only attack the target bacteria, leaving other helpful gut bacteria alone. The other is that they do not seem to be prone to resistance, despite the fact that they have long been in an arms race with their bacterial hosts.

OSU student views for beauty title (Gazette-Times)

There’s more camaraderie than cattiness behind the scenes there, she said, but there is some fear when it comes to answering questions from the judges. Thanks to viral videos, all beauty contestants know it is possible to botch an answer badly. (Enter “beauty contestants blowing their question” in a search engine, and there is no shortage of horrifying results.) The sophomore psychology major at Oregon State University, who is active in the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority, said she isn’t worried about that.
